    If you are doing engineering, get ready ready to study A LOT.

    UPDATE:


    Recently i had the opportunity to go and visit several of the schools on the top of my college list. The ones i visited were: Columbia, Cornell, Carnegie Mellon, and University of Pennsylvania. Basically, i met up with a few friends on Wall St and spent a few days in NYC, got to meet some big-wigs at UBS, and saw a friend from my high-school who now works for UBS. Then i got official tours/info sessions with Columbia and U Penn, walked through Carnegie Mellon (they are on Spring Break, so i only saw the campus), and an info session with Cornell (no tour, although i walked around FREEZING for an hour or so).

    From everything i saw, watched, learned, and experienced, i am 100% certain that U Penn is my top choice now. Ill be applying to the Wharton School of Business this November. I realized that i need to narrow down what degrees/majors/concentrations i want to pursue, so i have decided that finance/economics (you can do dual concentrations at Wharton) is what ill go with if i end up getting into UPenn. If not, my next top choice of the colleges is Cornell, and i would do an engineering major (either Computer science or something similar, not terribly sure on that...) with business classes on the side (minor, maybe). Im making back-up plans as well, but i wont post those on here.

    So, ask any questions if you have them. If anyone here went to UPenn, let me know how you liked it!

    Here are some photos from my trip:

    Did you visit the local bars and check out the women? I know how I would rank my colleges. It would have nothing to do with the buildings.

    Professor slams student!

    NYU Stern Professor Scott Galloway gave some valuable life advice to a student via email that's now gone viral.


    When the student arrived an hour late to the professor's brand management class, Galloway told him to leave. Later the student emailed Galloway, explaining that he was shopping around for classes, which is why he was late: "It was more probable that my tardiness was due to my desire to sample different classes rather than sheer complacency."


    Galloway eviscerated the student in his reply, which he forwarded to his TA to share with the rest of the class (keeping the student anonymous). Deadspin originally published the full email exchange in 2010; we've reached out to Galloway, who gave us permission to run his response and shared that currently "I'm getting an email about every 3 minutes from people (all over the world) voicing support/anger (about an 8:1 ratio)":


    Forwarded Message -

    xxxx:


    Thanks for the feedback. I, too, would like to offer some feedback.


    Just so I've got this straight...you started in one class, left 15-20 minutes into it (stood up, walked out mid-lecture), went to another class (walked in 20 minutes late), left that class (again, presumably, in the middle of the lecture), and then came to my class. At that point (walking in an hour late) I asked you to come to the next class which "bothered" you.


    Correct?


    You state that, having not taken my class, it would be impossible to know our policy of not allowing people to walk in an hour late. Most risk analysis offers that in the face of substantial uncertainty, you opt for the more conservative path or hedge your bet (e.g., do not show up an hour late until you know the professor has an explicit policy for tolerating disrespectful behavior, check with the TA before class, etc.). I hope the lottery winner that is your recently crowned Monday evening Professor is teaching Judgement and Decision Making or Critical Thinking.

    In addition, your logic effectively means you cannot be held accountable for any code of conduct before taking a class. For the record, we also have no stated policy against bursting into show tunes in the middle of class, urinating on desks or taking that revolutionary hair removal system for a spin. However, xxxx, there is a baseline level of decorum (i.e., manners) that we expect of grown men and women who the admissions department have deemed tomorrow's business leaders.

    xxxx, let me be more serious for a moment. I do not know you, will not know you and have no real affinity or animosity for you. You are an anonymous student who is now regretting the send button on his laptop. It's with this context I hope you register pause...REAL pause xxxx and take to heart what I am about to tell you:
    xxxx, get your $#@! together.

    Getting a good job, working long hours, keeping your skills relevant, navigating the politics of an organization, finding a live/work balance...these are all really hard, xxxx. In contrast, respecting institutions, having manners, demonstrating a level of humility...these are all (relatively) easy. Get the easy stuff right xxxx. In and of themselves they will not make you successful. However, not possessing them will hold you back and you will not achieve your potential which, by virtue of you being admitted to Stern, you must have in spades. It's not too late xxxx...

    Again, thanks for the feedback.

    Professor Galloway

    @E90SoFlo ... you just went up in my book. I bleed purple and gold a decade after graduation - and graduate school in Corvallis WhOregon.

    I would have to agree with the women at the Farm (Stanford). Wow. My favorite "away game" place to visit - even after experiencing the Rose bowl with sideline tickets with my brother in-law (USC grad 3 year football letter with a national championship ring). The loafers and khaki shorts gets old from the guys around campus but the girls and the region are indeed marvelous.

    Stanford is what it is. Amazing.

    I can tell you this much, I would not have let it end there and would have responded back with some fire of my own especially calling the professor on his arrogance. Regret the send button? It would be the other way around.

    Tell to companies hiring in the private sector. Unfortunately for the large majority of people attending college, you're paying for a diploma with a Name on it -- Which can open some extra doors & a better alumni network to tap into


    Once you graduate, your grades don't mean $#@!. It doesn't matter if you went to the local community college or Princeton, if you don't execute on the job you're not worth $#@!.

    Exactly I agree with this. I'd rather have all the money back.

    Yep, that rolled-up piece of cardstock does open up a lot of doors.

    A six-figure investment into private education is no doubt a hurdle for most students. Then again, I remember walking to class, seeing an international student with a Lotus Esprit or Jaguar XK, and thinking "wow, that's like 3 years of college right there" lol.

    I made a post about this exact topic once.

    Was walking to class and see a kid getting into his LP-570 Gallardo. I take a pic and post on the school's facebook page what a great school we have. A place people drive cars to class that the degree they are earning won't get them a job paying enough to even buy. I got banned from the facebook page :/

    Just wanted to chime in regarding Cornell more specifically Ithaca as a collegetown. I graduated from Ithaca College (Cornell's hippy drum circle of a neighbor) and had the most incredible 4 years living in Ithaca. Yes, it's cold and miserable when walking to class most of the year, but the surrounding scenery and variety of things to do and experience totally made up for the wind and snow.

    I understand a lot of the downtown has changed since I graduated in 2009, but I bet it is still a blast.

    P.S. The roads between Ithaca and Watkins Glen make for a beautiful roadtrip, too bad I didn't find that out until my senior year...

    I will second that feeling about Ithaca. Went to grad school at Cornell, but with wife and kid. Very good environment for pursuing higher education if your motivated. Enough social to keep you happy, but not distracted. The roads in the Finger Lakes region provide good driving.
